Some news at the tail end of the day for you:

According to CNN Money, more people own cats than individual stocks, which exclude mutual funds and all that good stuff.

New numbers out from the Federal Reserve show that just under 14 percent of Americans own individual stocks right now. That’s down from a high of 18 percent before the recession.

Meanwhile, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 30 percent of households own at least one cat.
